Yea! It’s Sunday and time for Six Sentence Sunday
Every week participants post six sentences from something they are writing – or have written. It’s a lot of fun and really a great way to meet new writers! And I’ve met some terrific people. Thank you !
Be sure to check out the other great participants and thanks so much for stopping by!
From my untitled WIP The stories start in the 50s. Six teens, seemingly very different, meet weekly and keep in touch with each other their entire lives. They must have something in common.
“I’m late ‘cause Spike, the bookie I work for, wanted me to do one more run this morning since the big race is this afternoon and he told me to collect as many bets as I could before lunch.”
Joey took a deep breath enjoying the warmth, dryness and comforting smells in the diner.
“It’s a good job because I’m not stuck indoors and now that I’ve been doing it for six months he trusts me; also it’s one job that doesn’t require a high school diploma just street smarts, reliability (the group with raised eye brows looked at him) and following the rules.”
Charles couldn’t help himself as he let out a loud guffaw.
” Joey you only follow the rules you want to follow.”
The rest of the group chuckled and Joey’s eyes opened wide with a ‘who me not follow rules?’ expression as he pointed his thumb to his chest; Joey appreciated a good laugh even if he was the target.
